Novi's economy and senior living facilities scored high marks on a day tradition fills with superstition and the fear of poor luck.

The Renaissance Gardens portion of Fox Run opened Friday 13th in front of a crowd of nearly 300 people. The new wing provides a sixth building for residents to live and opens up 50 new job positions resulting in more than 100 new employees.

"I've been told we're tempting fate by opening on Friday the 13th," said Mike McCormick, executive director of Fox Run, who also noted the complex's overall grand opening was on Aug. 14, 2003, the same day of the blackout reaching from New York to Toronto.

The ceremony didn't encounter any other problems than a potted plant blown over by the wind, as Sens. Mike Bishop (R-Rochester) and Roger Kahn (R-Saginaw) were present alongside John Erickson, CEO and chairman of Erickson Retirement Communities, and other complex, local and state officials.

The ceremony unveiled the first building of Renaissance Gardens, Rose Court, which consists of 110 skilled nursing care and 22 assisted living private rooms. This is the first assisted living facility on the Novi retirement campus.

"From more rooms will grow more hobbies and more activities and more friends," Erickson said.
